But Bob Doesn't Have Any Pain Pills


Ok people we need your help. Whitney and I were just laying in bed and we're having a discussion on pill taking techniques.  I said that the majority of the people put the pill in their mouth first then take a drink of water while the minority (myself included) put water in our mouth first followed by the pills and swallow them together.  Whitney on the other hand says that it's about 50-50.  So we're conducting a little survey to see what method people use. So feel free to let us know if you take your pills before or after the water.  Whitney right now is bugging me telling me that this is a "poor study design" "statistically speaking" that is and says that there will be statistical bias in the answers.  But feel free to answer anyways and I'll use my awesome math skills to correct for this "statistical bias." Just kidding...but not really.

Sam and I both put the water in our mouths and then put the pill in and swallow. :-)

Pills then water, every time. Tyler does it that way too, if you want to count him too.

Pills, then water. UNLESS I don't have pills with me (e.g. water is in one room, the room I'm in, and the pills are in another, but I know I'm going into that room to grab them).

Its always pills then water :) I think everyone in my family does it that way too.

Pill first, then water.

I support this study. Please run a regression and calculate a p-value.

Thank you for this.

Pills, water - because it never occurred to me to try it the other way. But now I shall experiment . .

Water first for sure. Then pill then another sip of water just to make sure it doesn't get caught in my throat and suffocate me.

Freak. I forgot you moved blogs. No wonder you're quiet!!!

I have to chew up a bitty cracker or something and then swallow a pill with that. I am literally incapable of tricking my body into swallowing a foreign object. If I try with just water, but throat closes off. I'm just that anxious.

So my vote is c) neither of the above.
